I recently posted "How to make a meat and cheese tray for 8 people" and thought I would include this appetizer I made for the holidays.  This cheesy and salty dish is loaded with color and flavor and so easy to make.  Honestly, I think it put everyone in the party mood as soon as they walked into my kitchen!  :-). I like putting appetizers out...

It's almost 10:00 pm and Thanksgiving is almost over.  We had a great day visiting with my family and my sister's in-laws.  We had 8 people all enjoying a lot of delicious food full of flavor and variety.  I brought the appetizers which was perfect because I got to use up the packets of dry dip mixes I bought in Sugarcreek, OH.  They had these...

Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Creamy Mashed Potatoes

I’ve been wanting to post my Mashed Potato recipe for a long time now but kept putting it off because it is just so easy and not much to it.  I’m that person who can cook a really hard meal and it comes out tasting scrumptious but can’t make boiled rice to save my life.  How can someone mess up rice??  Well…I can!  But, I’ve mastered these mashed...

Sweet Sausage Pasta

Sweet Sausage Pasta

As I was saying in my last post, Thomas and I were having a lazy weekend here in Missouri and I didn't feel like going out.  The weather was cold, rainy, and snuggling under a nice warm blanket sounded so much better than being cold and wet.  So what did we do about dinner????  We had leftover ingredients from the  Margharita Pizza recipe, some...

​So I was out and about today running errands and planned my last stop to be Panera Bread.
